I am sure that they sell some. As P.T. Barnum said "there's a sucker born every minute"

And what can I say I bought a tornado for my truck once.

Tornado makes so much sense at first. They offer you all this theory that makes you think you know stuff, when in fact they're just ignoring how it actually works.

I have one of these types of catch cans in my car currently. As far as I can tell it works great.

What's up with the expensive catch cans? LoL.

I guess I'm more of a DIY guy.

I am going to try to think up another version of this inline type of catch can. On my last car I had an open PCV system with this homemade can:



Seafoam for the win! lol

What's the ventilation for? Extra pollution power?

That was for crankcase ventilation. The seafoam can was filled with steel wool to separate the oil from the vapors. But yeah, I'm sure it wasn't good for emissions. I wanted to do a pre-turbo slash cut but I had a filter directly on the turbo so that was out of the question.

This was the only way I could see that where I could vent my crankcase both in vacuum and in boost.

They are silica gel beads...same material that is apparently used in refineries as part of the cracking process. They are supposed to have fine pores which help to separate out the more volatile vapors...while the heavier oils stay in the jar.

The resulting vapors are supposed to improve mileage by 20-40%.

Am I promoting this? No. I've used PCV jars before and have had no mpg gains...but have collected some oil and fine carbon...in the winter milky colored water also.

Some of these condensators also have an air bleed...I think the ones used on carbed vehicles.

You can find the beads for around $5 a lb.
